Local History Projects To End 2005-06 Speaker Series

May 14, 2006 at 8:07 PM

       The DuBois Area Historical Society will conclude its 2005-06 speaker series on Wednesday, May 24 at 7:30 p.m. with the annual program by Galen Kilmer, featuring DuBois Area High School local history projects. The program in the E.D. Reitz Museum , 30 W. Long Ave., DuBois, is free and open to the public.

       Galen Kilmer is DuBois Area High School ’s local history teacher. This will be his fifth year presenting this program, following in the tradition of Todd Thompson, who did a similar program for many years.

       The program is always unique and surprising. The high school students bring a new perspective to history and how it is examined. Kilmer will present the best of the projects completed by the students in his class, explain the course requirements for the class, and discuss how the students conduct their research.

       This will be the last general DuBois Area Historical Society meeting until September 2006. The schedule for 2006-07 will be announced during the summer.

       Twenty-five members and guests attended the April meeting, held at the Falls Creek Presbyterian Church. Rev. Robert Henry displayed and presented a program about early American pattern glass.
